I just finished my fourth rag rug on my Gilmore loom. I was surprised how much I enjoyed making them ... such fun! :)
My question, though, is this: What exactly is the "laid in" method of joining the rag strips?
I tried the slit method on two of the rugs and then sewing the strips together on the last two. Of course I have bumps where I tied the strips together and, while they are ok, I would like a smoother surface?
When sewing them together, I simply couldn't get the north/south, east/west figured out in my head so did a straight sew on them? Here again, my joins show? I know I'm not figuring the method correctly at this point but not sure where I am failing to understand?
So now I'm curious about the "laid in" method of joining? Can anyone point me to a site that shows this method? Or explain how it is done?
Thanks in advance.
